The Mort Union of Infected Mushroom is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by IM with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 22.161 billion citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crayon City. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Infected Mushroomian economy, worth a remarkable 9,247 trillion Kefkaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 417,274 Kefkaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

National chefs believe that you can eat anything so long as you deep fry it first, veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain, scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, and Infected Mushroom has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Infected Mushroom's national animal is the Pixie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Infected Mushroom is ranked 1,644th in the world and 1st in Mount Olympus for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 14,318.46 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
